The purpose of the article is to analyse systems of monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of fuel consumption and CO2 emission data from ships. The analysis in conducted on the basis of participant observation and document analysis methods. In the introduction the newest data regarding the emission of CO2 from international shipping is briefly presented. The article subsequently describes the obligation to monitor ship’s CO2 emissions imposed by the EU MRV regulation coming into force in 2018, which also defines the stages of the first period of reporting. The analogous global data collection system developed by the IMO, which is expected to commence in 2019, is described together with the draft of amendments to Annex VI of MARPOL convention in the form of regulation 22A. Both systems are compared and contrasted. Crucial shortcomings of the system proposed by the EU are presented and exemplified, in particular with regards to the protection of commercial data (e.g. transport work).
